Why I got involved in politics

I always loved and had an interest in making my local area better. I could see that by having a local representative sitting around a council table that it was much easier to fight your corner for a share of budgets .

Having helped out in Dail and European elections for Alan Kelly TD in 2009 onwards, I decided to put my name in the hat to contest the local elections in 2014, where I took the final seat in my area.

I contested the local elections again in 2019, where I won a seat again. Its always rewarding when you can help someone or see improvements made, but there are also some difficult days too.

My priorities

My priorities as a Labour representative for my area is to deliver for my local towns and villages. I will continue to support local organisations and clubs and I will try to ensure our communities are thriving for all.

I will support key infrastructural projects and carry on investing in our roads and footpath infrastructure.

I will encourage and support the development of more housing and support local education.

I will continue to support the development of public amenities in our towns and villages and I will ensure the environment is to the fore in decision making.
